Sep 12, 2007 | Posted by: The Canadian Press | Full story: The Canadian Press

(CP) - Loblaw Cos. Ltd. (TSX:L), racked by supply-chain woes, has disclosed it is "at an advanced stage in its discussions" with third-party logistics provider Atlas Logistics Retail Services LLC on operating a big distribution centre in Ajax, east of Toronto.

Loblaw said Monday that Atlas Logistics - a division of the former Atlas Cold Storage, taken over last year by Eimskip Holdings of Iceland - would run the 870,000-square-foot dry and perishable food distribution centre starting next spring. Read more

Y the fcuk did the lazy scum vote yes to this contract? Got nothing and get to pay union dues. Cannot strike, all existing rules still apply and still must follow a hand book they can change when ever they want.

Great deal!!!!!!

Could be worse! At least we are not CAW!

Wow, what a rotten agreement at Aspect! 35% of the workforce can be temps! How do the UFCW justify leaving the temps out? Say what you want about LIM but there are no agency workers there. Lots of UFCW supporters have run down the contracts at LIM for years. It's the same company! The bonus system sucks. The list goes on. Lets see them defend the what they did here.

They can not mock your deal. Only thing we got is one more day off with pay if your mom dies and the right to greive if you get in shit for doing something wrong.

Yaya i know you could take them to the labor board yourself before, but why not be lazzy and pay someone else to fight your battles for you.

I am sure in a little over 4years we will show them who is the boss and bend over and take another one for the lcl team.

Who really cares if Aspect got better or worse.

I mean come on, they're the dumbasses who voted the union in to complain about it later. Did they honestly think it was going to be a nice easy ride - Think Again. Once a Union is in the door they suck up so hard to the company the reps smell like dung when they walk by

Wake up people! we pay a union a lot of money to let the company screw us six ways from sunday, and they'll just sign on the dotted line

I am thinking of getting a warehouse job at LIM or aspect. Can anyone shed some light on if its a good place to work, particularly sick days, vacation time etc? Benefits? Is there much room to move up? Just a job or a career? Thanks

Which one aspect or LIM? Was thinking LIM because aspect you have to go through temp agency. Do you have to work weekends and afternoons/nigths forever or is there ever possibility of day shift or mon to fri?

I moved here from the states where all I ever did was factory work. Now living in Pickering with a wife and 3 kids to support and finding it very difficult to find a good paying job and the cost of living quite high! wife doesnt want me to work weekends but i told her in factories that will be real hard to find....

Both place sux.

You will be on weekends, midnights, split shits with random days off (not two together).

If you do not get taken under the wing of another ass kisser you will be left out in the cold.

There will be lots of drone ahead of you so it will take for ever to get ahead.

But if you want to be a whipping boy then have at it.
